Reimagining Public Safety Community Task Force

On June 30, 2020, Richmond City Council heard Item I-1 to direct staff to prepare a plan to transition from Richmond's current "community policing" model to a plan conducive to the reduced police force and return to Council with the preferred policing model and a plan for implementation by the end of Fiscal Year 2020/2021. Following discussion on the item, the City Council directed staff to “create a transition accountability task force composed by members of the public, including community organizations, individuals who were impacted by law enforcement, and law enforcement.”

City Council appointed twenty-one (21) members to the Reimagining Public Safety Community Task Force on October 6, 2020. View the list of all Reimagining Public Safety Community Task Force members.
